Antarctica inspires imaginations, an immense and nearly pristine continent, inhospitable yet enticing exploration and discovery. Governed through treaty by multiple nations that all stake political and research capital there, Antarctica is a contested space. With climate change and resource exploration leading to increased interest in the southernmost continent, we all live seemingly closer to Antarctica than ever before in history. In these images from my brief travels there I hope to articulate small pieces of Antarctica's past and present-its history of exploration and resource exploitation, the lives of its resident birds and mammals, and its incredible natural beauty.
